-- in the whole mess was pete williams from nbc. and this really changed the dynamics here, because breaking news always turned to cnn, because msnbc, they don't have a news association, they just have talkers, but they have got nbc behind them. they have peter williams and other people out there, and at a time like this, i knew because when i was working at msnbc, we did the same thing, so you turn to your nbc people who are just about the best in the business. there are some good people at abc too, but nobody came close to pete williams and he was the guy that had it right every time. and nbc, their rule inside was we're not reporting anything until pete says it is okay. and he by the way was trending on twitter. >> oh, yeah jand it shoots holes right into cnn's argument that their sources were wrong. there were sources that were right, and pete williams had them. >> bill: yeah, now look they did a good job in getting the word out, the photographs of the -- of the suspects of the terrorists, they put them out there responsibly, but it was beforehand when they were ju
's justice correspondent pete williams joins me now with the latest. let's talk about specifically the charges, miranda rights, the public safety exemption, where are we right now on that issue? >> well, the normal rule is that when someone's irsed, they're advised of their rights. you have the right to remain silent. anything you say can be used against you. you have the right to a lawyer. if you can't afford one it will be provided, that sort of thing. if police don't give that warning then they cannot use any statements of the defendant in court. the exception to that is called the public safety exception. it's been extended by judges to terrorism cases. and the idea is that if you need information quickly to preserve public safety, you can ask those questions and still use the responses in court. but that public safety exception rule is limited. it only applies for several hours after fill in the blank. we assume after questioning starts rather than after arrest. probably no more than a day, day and a half. >> where do you come up with that? pete, let me interrupt you there. wh

responses. nbc's pete williams has more on that, and more on how the intense manhunt came to an end on friday. >> reporter: though he lies under guard in a boston hospital in serious condition with gunshot wounds, including one to throat, federal officials say dzhokhar tsarnaev is beginning to respond to a few questions from a team of federal investigators. he is being questioned for brief periods, officials say, because of his condition, and he is responding mostly in writing. but he has difficulty speaking because of his throat wound, which some investigators say could be the result of a suicide attempt. newly released video from police helicopter shows how he was arrested. an armored vehicle with a robotic arm tore away a tarp covering a bet on a backyard trailer where he was hiding friday night. in this thermal image, the heat from his body clearly shows him lying in the boat. agents threw in small stun grenades, and a short time later he was under arrest. police radio relayed the word. >> subject in custody. >> reporter: boston transit police put the cuffs on his wrists, tariki
of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live with us right now. i know you've been reviewing these charges. what's the latest on what you've uncovered? >> it is a fairly interesting sequence of things that the government cites here as evidence. first of all they say that there was a surveillance tape that shows what apparently is the second suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, the man in the hospital, placing the bomb at the second bombing. this is unrelated picture to what i'm talking about now. but this is the person we're talking about. but the surveillance tape was taken at the scene of the second bombing. you may recall that there was a restaurant there called the foreign restaurant. they say a surveillance camera there shows him walking up to the restaurant with his backpack on. that he takes a cell phone off, seems to be using it for a while, then seems to be talking on it. and then after he finishes the call, the first explosion goes off. he can be seen reto it. and i'm wondering if this isn't a little bit of confusion to see the pictures we're showing now. maybe we
's not going to happen. >> all right, pete williams tonight, thank you. >>> as authorities search for answers, they are turning more of their attention to a trip the older brother made last year to the russian republics of chechnya and dagestan, both mainly muslim, both with militant separatist movements. tonight nbc's adrian mong is in dagestan in the neighborhood where some of the suspect's family lives. >> reporter: a long way from boston in this remote mountainous city in dagestan in the northern caucasus, relatives and friends of the suspected bombers are in shock over the news that two of their own may have been responsible for the marathon bombings. "i don't believe it but only allah knows," says an uncle of the brothers. tamerlan tsarnaev visited him when he traveled to dagestan last year. in the neighborhood where tamerlan and dzhokhar's father lives, the same sentiment. neighbors here on the street tell us they have a hard time believing what happened because they say the suspect's father is a good man. but the neighbors also say they haven't met the sons. dagestan is the russian fe
investigator reporter pete williams. i don't think he takes a day off. and boston police commissioner ed davis and peter gammons will also join us. bill has our forecast now. >> all eyes on the midwest over the weekend. the heavy rains from last week caused epic flooding and in some cases even record flooding. six states dealt with major flooding problems including michigan, illinois, indiana, and as we went through areas of missouri and even iowa, unfortunately, three people did perish from rapidly rising floodwaters this weekend. a lot of the rivers did crest and they are slowly going to be going down from here. the one exception the illinois river. you can see just thousands and thousands of people were sandbagging all weekend long trying to keep these rivers from flooding their towns. the mississippi river is the biggest river in town in our country and it's at major flood stage. anywhere from outside of the border with iowa and illinois there around the squad cities southward is where it's cresting as i speak and will crest later this afternoon a little further south down in this region.
how to proceed. matt? >> pete williams, thank you very much. edward davis, commissioner of the boston police department, joins us now. commissioner, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> you've got a suspect in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. unable to speak, but answering preliminary questions in writing. based on those early answers, are you 100% confident there is no future or further threat to boston in terms of accomplices or unexploded devices? >> this is very early in the investigation. we're satisfied that the two main actors, the people that were committing the damage out there, have been either captured or killed. there's still an open question as to exactly what happened in this investigation and there are enormous investigative resources being poured into that right now. we can't say with 100% certainty that -- anything actually at this point. >> do you know if this suspect has in any way given any indication of what the motive was for these attacks? >> no. it would be impossible for me to discuss anything about the suspect or the invest
